Cinnamon Stick Candle Holder

I know Christmas is fast approaching but hey, you still might need a small gift for a friend or some little table decorations for your Christmas dinner party this weekend.

Cinnamon Stick Candle Holder
I got this idea from Joann’s fabric store. I thought it would make an easy little project to do last minute.


No sewing involved for those of you who don’t have a sewing machine. (I know, several of the projects I do are with the sewing machine. I’ll try to even it out a bit. :o))


All you need:

  • Cube Candle Holder
  • Long Cinnamon Sticks (found in the craft section of many stores at Christmas time)
  • Ribbon (if desired)
  • Glue Gun
  • Scissors or mini saw
Cut the cinnamon sticks down to size, depending on the height of your glass holder.
  • Save


Hot glue them to the side of your holder, making sure that the sticks don’t go lower than the bottom edge of your holder.


Tie a ribbon on, or add a mini pine cone……….or both.

    I did the same but with sticks I collected from my garden.
    It looked very nice. Thank you!!!!!!

    I need a tutorial for how you tied such a perfect little bow, my bows always have one tail up and one down!

    I love candles and I love cinammon, so this is sooo appropriate!

    I have also done them inside the candles. It works great when you get the lovely scents around the home :)

    I too have 2 little ones and like you do not want (nor have the time) to spend doing complicated, time-consuming stuff, so your blog is ideal for me!

    Thanks for all the lovely ideas,

    Im having a Fall inspired dinner in a few weeks and these would be perfect. Now I hope I can find the time to make them!

    I love the cinnamon sticks! If you want a similar idea you can make one with a round vase and candy canes. You just put a rubber band around the vase and slip the candy canes behind the rubber band one at a time with the “hook” pointing out,and tie a ribbon around to hide the rubber band. it looks really pretty if you put red roses in the vase. You are more than welcome to make one and post it on your blog!
